Now I know who you are. I'm home already, front flatted about 300 feet in. Lost my hour trying to swap it, and pinched a new tube in the process. Shoulda just slept in.

Now I'll be gunning for triple secret redemption at the ri event.

I was also curious about that. I give him a ton of credit and also realize I am really a big baby. So intimidated to race!

When the XR650L pulled into the first check point they giggled that he was 3 minutes late.....but in fairness the rider said it was his first time ever doing something like this!

At the start line I tapped him on the shoulder and told him he was the crowd favorite!

He was with us (me and ed) to the last section. I don't think he houred out but he was asking how much more there was to do just before the last section. He was almost ready to throw the towel in i think. Just completing the race on that thing is badass.

Dammit bomber, I have still yet to meet you! Were you the guy with camera on the tripod by the porta-potty before the race?

That sucks, dude. I thought they were going to dump us on to the grass track right away, so when you came out and said you got a flat, I was like how the f do you get a flat on a grass track. I learned how soon after the start. That was some brutal stuff.

Yup I was thinking fool or bad ass, Bad ass it is

Maybe I should run one on my 650 just for the comedy effect. I couldnt even complete King Philip on my 200exc last year. It's not an "easy" one

It was too hot to wear the full costume.

Ecrane99 took 2nd c senior. I think kreech took fourth. Dirty Joe got his bike wedged under a tree and lost a lot of time trying get it out. He ended up treating it as a trail ride after that. He rode two sections with me after the gas stop and the fucker was on my ass the whole time. I couldn't shake him. I owe him a six pack, at least, for that extra motivation.
